ATOM BOMB: Data Management

by Remington Graphics in Scripts and Addons

Stop Letting Unused Data Linger in your Projects!

Even though it's an amazing software, Blender loves to leave tons unused and unnecessary data in your project files. ATOM BOMB is an add-on that has been specifically designed to solve this problem!

Clean your Project for Render farms!

Render farms tend to render small project files first. Use ATOM BOMB to remove extra data from your file before shipping it off! 

Get Rid of Un-deletable Data.

Blender has long been plagued with materials, node groups, and images that simply will not disappear no matter how many times you restart Blender. ATOM BOMB gives you the ability to manually delete this data without having to restart Blender at all!


  1. Open Blender's user preferences (File > User Preferences or CTRL + ALT + U)
  2. Navigate to the "Add-ons" tab at the top
  3. Click "Install Add-on from File..." from the bottom of the window
  4. Navigate to the folder you downloaded to
  5. Select the file
  6. Click "Install Add-on from File" in the upper right corner
  7. Check the check box next to the add-on to enable it in that instance of Blender
  8. If you'd like to auto-enable the add-on every time Blender starts, click "Save User Preferences" in the lower left, otherwise you can exit out of of the user preferences window.


Atom Bomb is located on the toolshelf of the 3D Viewport. If it is not appearing, try the following:

  1. With your mouse in the 3D Viewport window, press "T" until a menu on the left appears.
  2. Make sure the add-on is properly enabled

If the add-on is still not appearing, visit the support & feedback section.

    I think need hard update.

    Nuke work perfect. but clean option not so good.
    Maybe this addon need update and upgrade.

    Need more info about deleted and used/unused items.
    Like nodes, objects, materials list + list unused + (hided)

    I have some trouble: When i`m reload scene Atom found materials from previous scene, but auto-clean not work,
    Only "by type select" or "Nuke all" help.

    Well, sometime i need to understood - why file so big - this is, i`m think, important too.. Maybe some texture? Or node preset, material? Or mesh objects?

    1) 20-30% of my work i do now in 2.8.
    2) Need upgrade for better visual log and analyse
    3) Clean option work not so good. (or not work, example new scene which was saved as default with garbage)

    But... Atom is great for 5 usd!!
